A very diverse trail system. This mountain has something for everybody - Dirtbikes/ATVs, Mountain Bikes, Equestrians, Frisbee Golf, and more. It's a relatively large trail system, so it's easy to avoid all the differing traffic, as certain trails are designated for certain activities. You can take your family and dog for a hike near the bottom of the mountain, and somebody will be tearing around on a dirtbike higher up, and neither party would be bothered. Trails are clearly marked and numbered, and trail maps can be found at the trailhead.
As far as the Mountain Biking goes, the terrain gets more difficult the higher up you go. The trails are XC/All Mountain at the bottom, suitable for beginners and hardtails. Once you get into shared dirtbike territory higher up, I'd recommend a Full Suspension bike with Disc brakes, as it can get a bit steep and rocky. There are no jumps that I have found yet, however. In the summer, I hear you can visit the lookout tower at the top of the mountain, but I have not ventured that far yet. My favorite trail so far is 6.03.
All around, a great recreational mountain. A must ride in Missoula!
